I'm trying to wrap my head around the different personal flare/smoke grenades/devices used during different times. The Kilgore KC-13/MK 13 MOD 0 was used alot during Vietnam, is it still seeing use? When was it first issued? Also, we have the M18 which is another classic but I don't really have much background info on that one either.
Are there more/other/newer models out or are the different units still lugging around old ones?
Info on all distress and "offensive" smoke/flare/distraction devices is much appreciated
